That looks truly amazing! How are you handling the extra humidity in the house? Every once in a while I think about building something in the basement. Your tank looks great!

So far there isn't that much extra humidity from this tank (but there is alot from a pond I have that I will shut down.) but I will be installing a small air exchanger once the top is sealed and the bio-reactor will be vented outside or into the air exchanger to re-collect the heat. The bio-reactor right now gives off the most humidity from this tank.

Excellent build Scott! I am looking forward to seeing the mechanical setup for this dream tank. What did you end up using as a heater?

I thought it looked familiar. Zavlar is amazing stuff. Lots of people using it on their plywood builds now.... I'll be using it again someday for sure.

That looks awesome. Did I miss the dimensions of this setup? I'd love to see the filtration too
